Teachers and Accountability

It's time someone started holding schools and their teacher's accountable. No Chilf Left behind isn't cutting it. I am not saying that all teachers in all schools are bad teachers. In fact they are plenty of good ones in our school system but there are a handful that get away with being lousy teachers and don't seem to be held accountable. In the corporate world, some of these teachers would not last a day where accountability is key in job performance and an awful lot of the things that happen in schools would not be tolerated for a second. Schools need corporate performance management programs! The same ones they use in for profit companies.
